Another month has passed and we’re into July! How has half the year passed already?? We’ve been having too much fun I suppose. There’s still plenty to do around Jackson though. Read ahead and be sure to let us know what events you’ll be taking part in!
Traffic Jam’In Festival
July 9th, 5pm-11pm & July 10th, 12pm-11pm
Who doesn’t love a good car show? This event presented by The Copper Nail in Grass Lake is going to be full of fun things to do for everyone. There will be a 5K run/walk, tons of music, crafts, food, raffles, exhibitors, a petting zoo and of course a huge array of cars. Did I mention it’s free? This weekend will surely be a busy one!
July 11th, 10am-4pm
We’ve featured this event a few times on our Hub Local because it is seriously worth it. Summer is bound to be full of yard sales, so how great is it that this event puts them all in one place? You don’t have to drive house to house, searching for the signs at the end of the street while trying to follow the arrows that are pointing you in (hopefully) the right direction. Instead, head out to the Commonwealth Center to get all of your shopping done in one place!
Endless Summer Movie Night
July 16th, 7pm-10pm
While events like this have happened past years in Jackson we haven’t yet had the chance to check them out. Head out to CP Federal Square (212 W Michigan Ave) to watch a movie for free under the stars with friends this month. Be sure to let us know how it goes, we’d love to know!
Michigan Lavender Event
July 17th, 10am-5pm
So this event is in Mason, which may be a little bit of a drive from Jackson, but we wanted to include it because of how fun it sounds! This event will take place at Michigan Barn Wood & Salvage LLC. Columbia Creek Farms and Cinnamon Lane Bakery are the “Special Guests” and will be in attendance with fresh dried lavender and yummy treats. There will be plenty of other booths with lavender themed products such as soap and candles as well. Let us know if you check it out!
The Hub’s Huge Yard Sale
July 17th, 9am-4pm
Remember earlier when we were talking about yard sales being a huge part of summer? Well we’re jumping on the bandwagon now too! On July 17th The Hub will be hosting a yard sale at our building with a ton of vendors and a rummage sale sure to impress. You most definitely don’t want to miss this one!
Hot Air Jubilee
July 23rd-July 25th
If you’re from Jackson, know someone in Jackson, or just drive through Jackson sometimes, chances are you know about the Hot Air Jubilee. The 2020 show was cancelled due to Covid, but this year it’s back! You’ll be able to catch the hot air balloons lift off, Fiske Fries, Kid’s Kingdom, a car show, and plenty more at Ella Sharp Park this year. This event draws people from near and far, you’ll want to check it out for sure.
